Hi friends & happy Monday! I shot this look a few weeks ago and knew I had to share the location with you on the week of the 4th! My hometown of Fremont, NE is known for it’s antique stores. This is one of the awesome doorways you’ll find downtown.
I headed to the Lake of the Ozarks on Saturday with two of my best friends and we quickly decided on the motto “screw it, it’s Saturday!” We stopped along the way at a mom & pop breakfast diner and two awesome downtown areas. I’m thinking I’ll have to write out a roadtrip guide since it was more of an adventure than we anticipated!
I took the week off work to enjoy vacation with my family and friends, but you should get pieces of this look ASAP for your workwear closet! I nabbed this dress from Target in May to wear for my conference in Vegas but with my habit of overpacking, I didn’t ever get to debut it. It’s more of a silk-like material, making it easily worn for both work or a night out. My favorite parts are the adjustable straps and the fact that it’s machine-washable; this is rare for my work wardrobe!
I paired the dress with a poka-dot blazer that I’ve had for ages and my favorite Sam Edelman heels. I wear these heels 4/5 days a week and have THREE pairs. That should tell you something!
This week’s planner question and Motivation Monday:
Who are you thankful for this week? Send a note or card of appreciation to your friends, colleagues, etc. thanking them for all that they deserve.
I peeked last week and did this one early since I’m on vacation, but I chose five friends who could use some extra love this week. I sent two cards: congrats on your move and a wedding card, and I mailed three notes “just because”. I also dropped a thank you card off to our intern at work, since she has been a major blessing to our team.
It may seem trivial or weird to send your best friends notes, but letting others know they’re appreciated can go a long way. I also like to include a bible verse in a few, letting them know I’m thinking about how to help them with whatever they’re going through.
Have a great week, friends! Be sure to follow my Instagram to see vacation stories and pics!
